Trip Planner: Europe / Portugal / Northern Portugal / Aveiro District / Luso / National Forest of Bussaco
Set within the walls of a historical monastery complex, National Forest of Bussaco stands as one of the country's top preserved natural areas. Visit the park and explore its 105 hectares (259 acres) of thickets and greenery, comprising nearly 700 plant species. Guided trail tours are available in English, and each offers a varying degree of hiking difficulty, as well as a focus on a certain part of the forest. Stop by the ornate church and little-used royal palace. While the forest is only 2 km (1.2 mi) from nearby Luso, the walk is uphill and extremely steep, so those with mobility issues should avoid going by foot. Put National Forest of Bussaco on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Luso trip itinerary maker tool.

A great place to walk, breathe and reset the brain! It deserves now a rehabilitation, either of the woods and the buildings.

Beautiful place, a must visit area if you are near by. The landscape and the surrounding areas are incredible. You can also appreciate some of the style used by the Portuguese artists during the monarchy days. This place is also being proposed to be one of the UNESCO world heritage site, so this also says it all.
Walks within woodland, some quite steep but the Palace Hotel on the centre is amazingly spectacular.
